ATLANTA - With a focus on ease of navigation and new technology, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has unveiled its redesigned Website,

According to the Society, an improved Website is a cornerstone of fulfilling its new strategic plan, which calls for sustainability leadership, world-class educational programs, a raised public profile, and global access to technical information. A refined Google-powered search engine has been added, and site visitors will benefit from the site's optimum uptime and increased speed. The new, simpler design incorporates a technology that will integrate with the new member database that goes live this fall, allowing members to easily access subscription management tools for eLists and newsletters, and account history for events, purchases, and dues.

"The ASHRAE Website is the key component of the Society's strategy to provide membership service and technical information to the industry," said Steve Comstock, director of publications and education. "With the new technology incorporated into the site, our members and key audiences will be able to access crucial information faster and with greater ease."

Upon logging into the site, members will have access to the MyASHRAE section where they will be able to use the site to reflect their specific interests. Members can sign up for e-mail updates when updated content has been added to a particular section, and a lost password function allows users to quickly retrieve forgotten passwords.

The simplified site navigation is now broken into six tabbed sections:

  • Members (formerly Membership);

  • Publications (formerly Education and Publications);

  • Technology (formerly Technology and Standards);

  • Education (formerly Education and Publications);

  • Events (formerly Meetings and Events); and

  • Students (formerly Student Zone).

    Content from the previous site's About Us section now occupies a position at the top left under a new About Us section. The upgraded site will also include a redesigned bookstore upon the section's completion in December.
